ABOUT THE PROJECT


January 2020: Rosa and Robin (Solvay and Okayshades), meet on a plane and feel an immediate artistic connection. Three weeks later they find themselves coincidentally on the same returning flight.

They take the cue... and start meeting in Robin's studio to write some music. Rosa's professional experience as an actress inspires them to produce something more than just a single... and so they decide to develop a short musical film.

"Ghosted, or The Cactus Effect" illustrates how one loses their sense of self after being rejected. The film poses the question: how does it feel to be ghosted?

Solvay and Okayshades are very proud to have collaborated with Marx Audio on mixing the music in the Dolby Atmos surround sound format.
